    How would you measure levels of Self Esteem, Independence and Confidence in young people, particularly those with severe learning difficulties and autism?

    Think about babies, toddlers, children and teenagers.

    What things would you specifically observe?

    Some examples:
    Self-Esteem: they show satisfaction in something they’ve done. They can enjoy a task without being praised.
    Confidence: they initiate a game with a peer. They ask for help.
    Independence: they follow a practical instruction without help. They show initiative.

    Thank you :)
